5. Anguilla Lit Fest
Paradise Cove Resort, Anguilla

Anguillaโ€™s literary festival, which took place just last weekend, is only in its third yearโ€”yet already, it has one of the most heavyweight lineups of any in the Caribbean. This year alone, they had a Pulitzer nominee, the editor of, and the co-founder of Essence among a long list of speakers at the event, set in Anguillaโ€™s aptly named Paradise Cove Resort. (Actor/author Hill Harper of CSI, seen in the above pic, was also present). Of course there are Anguillan authors featured as wellโ€”the idea of the festival, a โ€œliterary jollification,โ€ harkens back to the islandโ€™s oldest traditions, โ€œa getting together of people to share and help neighbors.โ€
